No matter what kind of writing you do, if you are a writer in the East Texas area, we welcome you! We have a lot to offer our members: monthly meetings, workshops, and good old-fashioned camaraderie. Have a look around on our site,  then come visit us at our next meeting. We can’t wait to meet you!

Upcoming Meetings

We normally meet 3 times a month. The second Monday of the month is our General Meeting when we usually offer a speaker or program relating to writing, editing, publishing, etc. The third Monday is our Business Meeting followed by our Nutz & Boltz meeting which is a more informal time for our members to interact and share helpful information with each other. Times and locations usually remain consistent.

 Writing Tip of the week

“Making people believe the unbelievable is no trick; it’s work. … Belief and reader absorption come in the details: An overturned tricycle in the gutter of an abandoned neighborhood can stand for everything.”
